Pretty, pretty, pretty please yes to Hugh and Anne!  
They keep taunting us with the possibility. HAPPEN ALREADY, DAMNIT!

Anne Hathaway in talks for 'Les Miserables'

Back in 2009, Oscar host Hugh Jackman dragged Anne Hathaway on stage for a sensational Frost/Nixon duet. Last February, Hathaway had to settle for a solo of “On My Own” from Les Miserables after Jackman, she joked, “bailed on [her] at the last minute.” Well, it looks like the two might be joining forces again soon. As BroadwayWorld.com reported last night, Anne Hathaway is in talks to join Jackman in a film adaptation of the Les Miserables musical. A spokesperson for the actress says that Hathaway is considering playing Fantine, the ill-fated mother of Cosette, opposite Jackman’s Jean Valjean. The King’s Speech‘s Tom Hooper is slated to direct.

If you did not witness their awesome duet, and uber-hot chemistry (not that these roles would require the latter, damnit!), check it out here! Their section begins at about 2:15.

I had no idea Anne or Hugh could sing that well. They would be awesome together in Les Miserables. I'll keep my fingers crossed that this comes true.

Hugh won a Tony on Broadway, and did a few shows in Australia (Beauty and the Beast -- he was Gaston, and Oklahoma). He has an AWESOME voice. Anne was a surprise to me. :)

That would have been a treat to see Hugh as Gaston in AUS. With a voice like his, I can hear how he won the Tony.
What beautiful and talented people they are. :)

You add a great deal of fun to my LJ experience, Jenn. I'm lucky that we crossed paths.

and I have my fingers crossed for you that your potential set trip works out ...

I have the mp3s of it, and the Oklahoma is available on DVD, I believe.

Aww, thank you. You're too sweet! And right back atcha! :)

*hyperventilates* OMG! A Les Mis film adaptation?????? Yes, yes please let's have this! I love that musical so so much, and would very much love to have it added to my "broadway" collection; right next to Phantom of the Opera! This absolutely has to happen! The only sad thing is that I don't have any local girlfriends (or even a gay best friend) to see it with, if the dream does come true. I'll have to go On My Own (see what I did there?). lol. Unless...maybe now that my baby brother's into Glee, he might decide to go with me? *crosses fingers*

That's the only musical I actually saw on Broadway (for my hs graduation present). I was there On My Own, but it was still awesome!!!

Good luck getting your brother to go with you. I'm sure I could get my sister to come with me. I just hope it actually happens.

Do you know that Anne was supposed to do Phantom of the Opera, but scheduling conflicts got in the way? Uh huh.

Wow That's awesome news, I hope it happens.

If they do partner up for the film adaptation of Les Miserables, I make sure I never miss it.

I love both of them and would love them in Les Miz.

I always go back and forth between Les Miz and Phantom as my favorite. I've seen both, but only Phantom on Broadway. Both always give me chills, make my hair stand on end and each have songs that reduce me to a blubbering idiot ("On My Own" and "Music of the Night").

The travelling production of Les Miz is coming to our local Performing Arts Center next November and I am so excited. It's also going to be in Washington DC when I'm there in October and I'm going to try and convince mom we need to go.

Plus, I'd watch Hugh Jackman read the phone book, so Les Miz? All i can say is HELL YEAH.
